Favorite Thing About Working With Clients

“In my role, I view everyone as a client, even my colleagues. The way I communicate, set expectations; follow up and follow through with them is all conducted the same way, with the same level of professionalism, attention to detail, and world-class excellence. I’m a Relator and Individualizer, so I have a keen ability to see the uniqueness in everyone and assess their (often unspoken) needs. Finding creative ways to connect clients with solutions and providing clarity is what drives me to do my best work.”

My Philosophy On Client Service

“I have this quote posted in my office and I think it reflects my overall philosophy in life: ‘Your smile is your logo, your personality is your business card, how you leave others feeling after an experience with you becomes your trademark.’”
